Ridge Valley School conducted the Math Mela on 15th July, 2016. The theme of this year’s Math Mela was "Shapes". It was divided into various groups
Group 1 : Grades 2, 3 were given the topic ‘Amazing Shapes’ – redesigning the favourite space in their home.
Group 2 : Grades 4,5 worked on ‘Shaping your Dream Structure’- Designing own model of any space/structure – for example- a playground, a football field, a basketball court, a mall, a market etc using 3-D shapes.
Group 3 : Grades 6,7 built their own ‘Architectural Model’ - a scaled down version of a building / structure representing physical design aspects of the structure.
Group 4 : Grades 8,9 designed a ‘Smart Geometricity’ using solid shapes divided into various zones : Residential and Industrial Zone , Commercial Zone , Recreation Zone , Street Pattern
The children of grades 2 to 9 showcased their respective models.
The air was filled with excitement as the entire school was decorated with buntings made up of shapes created by the Ridgeans.
Parents were invited to visit the classes. They encouraged and motivated the students for their creativity and presentation. Each child confidently elaborated about their projects in front of the parents which reinforced the logic behind their hard work.
